Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to a viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern. Most often such symptoms are due to viral infections and antibiotics are ineffective in such cases. Antibiotics would not help and irrespective of treatment it usually spontaneously resolves in 5-7 days. Some children are more prone to catching cold and recurrent episodes are seen. Such infections are frequently associated with an allergic component.

If your child has fever with temperature more than 100°F, you need to give paracetamol or acetaminophen (P-250, Crocin or Tylenol) to it bring down. If paracetamol is not effective in bringing down the temperature, you need to use Meftal-P (mefenamic acid) which is more effective.The minimum gap between two doses of Crocin is 4-6 hours. The doses of Crocin and Meftal P are independent of each other. Minimum gap between doses of Meftal P is 6-8 hours. However, I do not think that they would be needed to be used simultaneously. Also use tepid sponging.

Please be patient. Recovery will gradually occur.

Hopefully that would help. Feel free to write back in case of further queries.

i am worried out of my head, and too scared to get tested so i am going to try to get some peace of mind from one of these forums. here's how it started i received unprotected oral sex from a prostitute. about a week later, i had a high fever without any symptoms other than fatigue. i got better, but about two weeks later i started coughing. i had a cronic cough for about two months, didn't think anything about it. then, one day i noticed a white coating on my tongue and started looking these symptoms up. i freaked out. about a couple of months with only the tongue problem and a lot of hours of research on the internet i was getting symptom after symptom. the one that is the most disturbing is my CONSTANT stomach growling. all day long, especially when i am laying down. so it's been about five months and i still have these two symptoms, stomach growling and white coating on tongue, and a mild sore throat which is worse in the morning. had some standard blood tests everything came up fine, which makes me worry even worse. i was prescribed nexium for acid reflux. from all of this, and my internet research i think i could have: -GERD -Irritable Bowel Syndrome -Oral THRUSH -Stress/anxiety -HIV (hope not) -Allergies -coeliac disease Plus, I have a huge canker sore on my lower lip for about a week now. Thank You!
